Mike Linehan recently shared a photo that he had processed through the BrushStroke app — which is what I love about PhotoBlog, the ability to share. I got myself a copy (it is only for iOS and it does cost) and fortunately a friend of mine had given me his old iPad (my first Apple device). So, started playing with it and was extremely impressed with the variety of styles and variations you can use with it. I have included a few samples with fit my artistic taste, but there are some much more experimental styles as well. You can see the brush strokes, control the thickness of the paint, and change the material painted on. These are all on a canvas background with medium paint thickness.
Aside from being a lot of fun, I see one definite use for this app: Rescuing images that have a good subject by may be a bit soft with the focus. I have my share of those that would make great paintings but are disappointing as photos.
